Seadek is foam... 6mm closed cell foam. I sent them the template and they are going to cut it out in the grey over black teak look with the mastercraft logo in the middle. The teak "strips" will run bow to stern and the logo port to starboard

SeaDek order is placed...

I went a head a reinforced the rails that the plate will rest on and then painted them. Im thinking I will just pick up the seadek step kit and stick the 4 pads on the black rails to prevent vibration noises.

The bottom the engine cover will be lined with Dynamat hoodliner, should help reduce engine noise and heat.

Fresh coat of rustolium hi temp heat / rust protector:

Got it installed last night, and went for a cruise. It actually sounds quieter for some reason at idle. At wakeboarding speed the sound resonates different, not louder or quieter just different. The hood liner and hindges come today so that should help keep the noise down. Sea dek is working on the pad.

It is damn sturdy though!

Looking forward to seeing it with the seadek.

Do you think the reinforcement on rails was actually necessary then? The stock weight gas shocks will be strong enough still?

The rails that it sits on did not line up with the 2" support beams welding to the frame... with the handle cut outs and without getting even fancier i was easier to just weld the 1" square tubing. before it was sturdy, but i could see 1 area where it did not sit completely on the rail. Now with the extra support it is solid!

I installed the dynamat hoodliner on it this weekend.



The deck never got "hot" but it would get warm (similar to the ski pylon) now with the hoodliner, it doesn't even get warm. It is pretty quiet too.

What no lights after that beautiful job - -- just sayin... Looks awesome...

hmm had a thought... with it being that strong you could put a high pressure actuator to take care of those folks who think our boats run on "thanks" - and in the fall you could have one cool pumpkin' chucker.
